    I hate the dog 95% of the time...Nobody knows less about sports then Russo.

    However, there is nobody I love listening to more after the Yankees lose a big game! Makes me smile soo much!

    But he is good at his job...I really dont think he even believes half the things he say. He just does it for the shock factor, he really cant be dumb enough to believe some of the things he says. He really is a horrible journalist...

    Mike used to get on my nerves at one point..he was a schill for whatever team Parcells was coaching..I realize they are friends..but sometimes he would just make excuse after excuse..and GOD FORBID anyone say that a team coached by Parcells lost a game cuz Parcells made a poor decision!! :cool:

    Oh yeah, he will never speak bad of Parcells or Bobby Knight...I think they are hunting or fishing buddies.....

    I hate how that fat fuck talks down to people, that shit pisses me off. However, at least he has some knowledge. He knows a lot about the NFL and College Sports. He does also know a lot of people from his previous jobs who have a lot of knowledge. That is why when he says he heard something thru the grapevine, normally I belive it.

    I am assuming everybody knows his connection with Jimmy The Greek

    did he used to work as a tout on the Greeks show??

    I used to listen to these guys pretty regularly when I lived in NYC from 1994 - 2002. I hated Mad Dog at first but grew to appreciate him, particularly because he's a SF Giants fan and so, for a Bay Area guy living in NYC, there was always a good amount of SF Giants talk to listen to. Mike comes across as a pompous ass but overall they do a pretty good show. I'd rather listen to Ferrall though. :D

    I don't. What's the connection?

    Francesa used to work on the CBS pregame show with Brent Musberger and the Greek. He liked them both.

    I love the Dog,

    Francesca is a prick, he would sit in a bar with a velvet rope around him so the "common folk" didn't approach him
  15. elricsi Full Member

    They suck, but they are great to make fun of!

    I am pretty sure that he also worked on the Greeks "tout" sheet back in the day
  17. scotsalemfan Full Member

    I know he liked him a lot, and always talked up Brent too.

    Francessa was the brains behind Jimmy the Greek...That definately gives you credibility in my book. He is the one who was really making all of those unbelievable college picks...Here is the wikipedia backround info from Jimmy the Greek.

    As a football commentator, Snyder was controversial. He would often give his picks for winners of games and touted his ability to make the right picks, which critics claimed were indirectly encouraging gambling; Snyder countered by saying that he never gave the spread of the games, so his picks couldn't be considered an endorsement of gambling. According to the autobiography entitled Jimmy the Greek by Jimmy Greek, Steve Herskowitz (Editor), and Mickey Herskowitz, he bet $10,000 USD on the 1948 election between Thomas Dewey and Harry S. Truman, getting 17:1 odds for Truman to win.

    Met them both at New York Giants training camp last year and got pics with them... Really nice guys, both came over and talked sports with the people.

    There was even this one guy that started yelling at Mad Dog from the bleachers and him and Dog started getting into with each other. Over the Yankees or something. It was really funny.

    Anyways, yeah, I watch on YES when I have the time but I'm usually not home...
